Groups and Teams

 
With your current work team in mind, complete the Assessment of Team Basics Scale (see the article by Russel & Jacobs, pg. 20) which assesses how effectively your group functions as a team. Report on your team’s strengths and areas of improvement. Offer suggestions for improvement. (Complete this assignment individually – do not give this to your team to complete).
